Opening up like a main street in a small town, 4th Street is bursting with flowers in the summer and alive with people careening around corners or relaxing on a patio with a coffee in hand. Lined with boutique shops, great restaurants and historic buildings, the 4th street shopping area is as quaint as it is trendy.
“It feels like a small town, all the business owners know one another and it’s just such a welcoming community that comes together so easily.”
The street is also home to Calgary’s first street festival of the summer season: the Lilac Festival. Every May, the street fills up with over 100,000 Calgarians listening to music, trying some new food or having a pint in the sun.
